Luxuriously-appointed suites feature chic designer touches and individual style with private decks from which to enjoy the breathtaking views over the ever-changing estuary all the way to the Indian Ocean. Relaxed luxury and the beautiful setting conspire so that guests have no option but to take a deep breath, shake off their cares and sink into the view.

  • Accommodation for 2 people sharing for 3 consecutive nights
  • Breakfast daily
  • Local beverages
  • Breathtaking views
  • Personal attention
  • Relaxed luxury

Soak in the sun at the pool, experience the peace of the ancient forest and the many surrounding waterways or enjoy a round of local golf before gathering at the bar for complimentary drinks with your hosts. Aside from in-house kayaks, mountain bikes and a luxury speed boat from which to explore the natural beauty of the area, this family owned 5-star guest house provides easy access to a host of local activities from paragliding to whale watching, world-class golf at discounted rates, excellent cuisine and, of course, shopping.
